Quote: "Although this arrangement meant considerable financial risk, it also promised to be profitable if the new theater was a success. The Globe proved to be a wise investment, and it remained a home to Shakespeare’s acting company until the religious reformers known as Puritans closed the theaters in 1642, during the English Civil War"(Lander 4).
Paraphrase: The quote shows Shakespeare took some risks for his company. He came through with it and all in all made a wise decision. It also shows Shakespeare kept the globe theater for 43 years until it was closed in 1642.
My Ideas: Shakespeare took risks.

Quote: " By 1612 when he returned to Stratford to live the life of a prosperous, retired gentlemen, Shakespeare had written 37 plays, including such masterpieces as Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, and Macbeth"(Anderson 777).
Paraphrase: The quote from the book William Shakespeare's Life: A Genius from Stratford, shows how Shakespeare has made a lot of plays. He made a lot of enjoyment because all 37 of them were either comedy, romantic, or dramatic and sometimes all of them together.

Paraphrase: This shows the theatre was used for many different plays, all from one person. According to the quote, William Shakespeare made comedies and dramas. For instance, Shakespeare created "The Comedy of Errors, Titus Andronicus, The Taming of the Shrew, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, Love's Labour's Lost, and Romeo and Juliet."
